    IRS allows weight loss programs but not the foods that are usually sold with them. They also allow:
    exercise programs recommended by doctors when there is obesity, or other handicapping illnesses or
    accidents. They allow assisted living costs, Depends, crutches, etc, etc. They still do NOT allow
    over-the-counter drugs or herbal "remedies" or even good old aspirin. Anyone have a health deduction
    question? Go ahead. Nan, EA in LA (tax preparer over 30 years) and also Type 2 over 13 years.
